Course Work

There are no specific classes required of Global Scholars in general. The only exception is Global Scholars' first semester in Dublin. See below for an exact list of course offerings.

WHERE YOU'LL TAKE CLASSES: Dublin Business School is Ireland's leading independent third-level higher education institution. Having established an excellent reputation for teaching quality and standards, DBS offers flexible and innovative learning opportunities that reflect and match the needs of Baylor students. In the past two years, DBS won Irish Education Awards for Overall Education Excellence, Best Student Experience, and Best Library team. They were also named Ireland's Best College of Business and Business School of the Year for three consecutive years. Don't let "Business" in the name fool you — this campus and courses are open to all majors. 

WHO WILL TEACH YOU: At DBS, a Baylor faculty member will teach two courses, a Baylor Ph.D. student will teach one course, and DBS faculty will teach other courses approved by Baylor academic advisors. All classes will contribute toward the students' degrees and allow them the ability to graduate on time.
